Around 3 P.M. I awoke with my first vision of The Future in several years. I told Marilyn a dozen times I have no dreams of the future. I am talking about Awake Dreams.
Before I lay down for my Old Man Nap I glimpsed at just one photograph of Margaret Bourke-White – and that was enough! When I awoke I said;
“You have arrived at the core of the Labyrinth. You have found her!”
When I beheld her wondrous work, I thought of Howard Rourke in Fountainhead. Was Ann inspired by Margaret?
Art and Literature contain – SOLUTIONS! The solution to racism and the rise of Black Lives Matter – and the call to tear down monuments that white men made – is an Art Problem thanks to Erksine Caldwell and his beautiful wife who saw a great problem in the present – that they knew would affect our future. They acted, while Harper Lee did not. John Lennon and Yoko acted, while Paul and his wife did not. Richard and Mimi Farina – along with the Baez family – acted, and Pynchon did not.
We ALL have to act! There is no hiding places anymore. If we are going to survive, we must build the future – make our future – out of clay!

Margaret was investigated by the United States Government for being anti-American, as was Dashiell Hammet and Lillian Helman. Dashiell went sailing and camping with Royal Rosamond who ran for an office in Ventura as a Socialist. These creative people were oppressed because they had socialist ideals. Trump is a billionaire who pitted his private army, his Pinkerton Police, against Black Lives Matter demonstrators. This history has come around again. I was ready for it to do so – and say so!
